Birthday Presents


I love reading other people's posts about what they got for Christmas or their Birthday (maybe I'm just nosey) so thought I'd share some of my presents I got for my Birthday last week.

Now you all know that I love to bake but I also really enjoy cooking different things too, so my mum and dad got me these Wagamama cookbooks and I can't wait to try out some recipes from them.  I love Wagamama so being able to recreate some of my favourites at home will be amazing.

When it comes to perfume I have my two favourites and they're the ones I tend to stick to - Coco Mademoiselle and Miss Dior, but when I was in Boots shopping for perfume for a friend I mentioned to my mum how lovely this one smelt.  She obviously took note when I found this wrapped up for me.  I love the cute little bottles the Marc Jacobs perfumes come in and this one has a lovely sweet smell to it.

I haven't talked about it too much on here yet but I am on a bit of a health and fitness kick.  I have been trying to eat a lot healthier and am currently doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.  I have just started Level 3 and have seen a huge change in my fitness level and now I can use these weights I got for my birthday along with it I'm hoping I'll be able to increase it even more and get even more toned.  I've been wanting one of these Yankee Candle burners for a while and the Home Sweet Home melt has an amazing Cinnamon smell to it, so I can't wait to burn that.  My mum and dad also got me a voucher for a spa day at Eden Hall, which I recently went to for my friend's hen party and it was so relaxing.  I can't wait to go again.  Then I also got this aromatherapy bath and shower oil which is meant to focus the mind and calm your thoughts.  I haven't tried it yet but will be sure to do a proper review of it when I have.

My lovely cousin who is doing a work placement at Warner Brothers got me the Game Of Thrones box set, so I can't wait to finally catch up on those.  I've only watched Season 1 and have been dying to watch the other 3!  Then I got some vouchers and money from friends and family that I'm hoping to go and spend to get a few bits for my holiday to Santorini in a few weeks.

My friend Lisa, whose wedding I am going to Santorini for, got me a little goodie bag full of Makeup Revolution goodies.  I've been wanting to try some Makeup Revolution products for a while so these were a nice surprise.  Also can't wait to tuck into these chocolate truffles she got me, how cool is the packaging?!

Then finally I got this amazing book from my boyfriend.  Ever since I did A Midsummer Night's Dream at school I fell in love with Shakespeare and have wanted a classic copy of his complete works.  I have hunted high and low and they have either been in really bad condition or ridiculously overpriced.  Somehow he managed to hunt down this copy for me, which is over 100 years old from 1908 and is in amazing condition.  It is one of the loveliest and most thoughtful presents I have received.
